Digital Humanities: A Mini-Exhibition as a Model for Presenting Research
Taylor C. Schulz
Dr. Julia DeLancey, Faculty Mentor

The integration of technology in university and professional settings has always posed a complex challenge as to the most effective means of presenting information. This digital humanities project will present a web-based, interdisciplinary, hypothetical mini-exhibition designed as a way to effectively utilize technology to display historical information together with related artifacts. Through close examination of a sample faux mini-exhibition (and website) on the Italian city of Florence before the ruling Medici family became dukes (1410-1530), the viewer is presented with a unique and engaging presentation structure where information is organized via a location map on the exhibition website. The interactive manner of learning presented through the various links provides the viewer an opportunity to engage with the information on a surface level or to delve into a specific topic further, as an active website may be returned to repeatedly.
